mately 200 farmers and landowners
slong the headwaters that fish are
being killed m the stream due to
tne contaminated water. . y-
flubbard told the group the re
port or nan dying in tne stream
was valid and the cause had been
determined by the State WUd Life
Commission as stream pollution be
ginning in the headwaters of the
Northeast Cape Fear River. . '
While the state officials did nit
single out any one factor as cause
for the water contamination they
did make note of the fact that
facilities of the town's sewage sys
tem constructed in 1912 are
inadequate and also that Industrial
wastes from the pickle Company
are being dumped into the stream.
According to the-state official
complaints also have been filed
with Governor Scott and the Sani
tation Committee that cattle are
unable to drink from the stream
because of the polluted water.
